US PLAYER NEEDING URGENT ADVICE!
Hey guys, I could really use some 100% honest help here. I live in Illinois
, United States and was a daily online poker player on Ultimate Bet before Black Friday. I lost the rest of my BR, about 6-8K when the sites were shut down.
Anyways, since Black Friday, I have been anxious to play online again. But, I have heard from some that if me playing online right now in the U.S. would be illegal and there is a small chance that I could get myself into legal trouble. Is this true at all?
I understand that I am risking my money that I put on the site and that there could be slow payouts and such. But, I want to be 100% assured that it is COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE for me to get into any legal trouble myself for playing online again before I start back up????
If it is safe, what site do you guys recommend? I've heard Bovada
or Carbon are the best? Any advice? I'm mostly a 6-9 seat SNG player, preferably at 20+ buy in. Any help is really appreciated on this. Thanks
